Project Name: Somaliland E-government Capability Enhancement Project
Project Description: The Ministry of ICT of Somaliland unveiled the Somaliland e-Government Strategy 2020-2024 Action Plan, a government digitalization implementation guideline which requires many external resources for initiation. Government institutions in Somaliland currently work individually with limited information exchange. People have to visit multiple departments to take care of business and the service quality is unsatisfactory. Furthermore, data exchange among government institutions requires lengthy phone calls or communication. This system puts the overall operation under the risk of low efficiency, data mishandling, poor management, and tracking difficulties. As a result, cooperation among government institutions is challenging.

This project echoes the 16th and 17th UN Sustainable Development Goals through establishment of channels for the government to be transparent and disperse information to the general public, while also enhancing the government digitization and e-governance capability. The main content of the project is to enhance Somaliland's e-government capability through establishing a data exchange platform among government institutions, capacity building and institutional strengthening, and improving government network management.
